Lynne Huysamen – Mompreneur, Mommy Blogger & Mental Health 2

Hi ladies, it is so amazing to have everyone here and engaging with each other. I will happily kick start the introduction thread off and I hope that you all take part as soon as possible.

My name is Lynne Huysamen. I am a married mother of a pigeon pair. A beautiful 7 year old girl and a wild, loving 5 year old boy.

I am also a recovering alcoholic and drug addict – close on 11 years clean.

I started blogging in 2012 after my daughter was born. My first blog posts were added to my online store as a way to try and drive traffic to my website. Very quickly I figured out how much I enjoy blogging and I also figured out that I didn’t need to invest money in buying products to market and sell them. I didn’t have to do all the admin work related to selling physical products – no storing, packaging, ordering, shipping… I can make money through my writing and marketing.

Tasks which I would have to be doing anyway to market my online store and make sales.

I closed my online store and changed that website to my blog which is still my main business – Kaboutjie.

I have built a number of websites over the years and made money from all of them. However managing multiple websites is not easy and I find myself spread too thin. It has taken me a while to really think about the direction I want to be in and the things that I want to blog about.

While I love all my websites I have made plenty of mistakes along the way. Now that I better understand what I am doing I am going to be making my website my main money focus moving forward.

This website which I set up last week is also going to be a big focus since I love connecting with other bloggers and I really believe that as women, many of you also mothers that work from home, we can support each other and help each other grow.

Women empowering women is something I am passionate about. I hope to grow this community into a fantastic resource for women bloggers.

Very soon, when this community is up and running more, I plan on building my next website which will be a local community website.

On I am going to be writing about mental health, parenting, mompreneur, travel, inspiring people (mostly women) and anything else that I love.

Since I am the first one in here I can’t share the introduction topics that I enjoyed but I will be reading them all as they are published.

    Thank you Lynne for creating such an amazing platform for women. I am also passionate about supporting women in business and creating a community where collaboration is the foundation. I am very new to blogging and looking forward to learning so much, and assisting fellow members where I can. May this community continue to grow from strength to strength! Onward and upwards!

    I found this website by accident, but I must say after seeing what you offer to women in terms of resources and support to get their businesses and ideas out there is wonderful. Thank you for welcoming me to this group.
